"MasterChef Junior" showcases children cooking on stoves, reaching into ovens and using knives. It sounds like an accident waiting to happen, but these children have a special gift. The reality show, intended for family viewing, airs for the first time on Sept. 27, 2013. Kids on reality shows are fun to watch especially when they are taking over the roles of adults. Expect some humor, talent and a softer side of Chef Gordon Ramsay.

The group of 24 young, aspiring chefs, that range in age from eight to 13, will become a top 12 during the one-hour premiere of "MasterChef Junior." Chef Gordon Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot are judging the competition. The three were full of encouragement and compliments for the kids. Ramsay will not yell profanities to these young, master chefs-in-training, but he will still insult the food by calling it "a dog's dinner." He doesn't want to make the children cry for the camera. The kids were sent home two-at-a-time to make the elimination process easier on them.

“I don’t think I swore once,” Ramsay told the Television Critics Association.

“Twice,” corrected Gavin, a 10-year-old "Masterchef Junior" contestant from San Francisco. Gavin explained that Ramsay’s cursing was directed at the servers during a restaurant challenge, never at the kids.

The winner of "MasterChef Junior" receives a $100,000 cash prize. Locally you can view "MasterChef Junior" every Friday on FOX channel WAWS 30 in Jacksonville.
